This is the painted version of Amos the Herdsman Prophet. I was going for a mixture of Greek style sculpture, but at the same time, capturing the ruggedness of a man who God prepared, like David, leading sheep.
It was not an easy life. There were risks to take, battles to face, and sacrifices. Any shepherd will tell you, their sheep are worth it. That is exactly the type of man God loves to call.
Men who passionately love God, and who have a shepherd’s heart. I have a Pastor like that, and I’m sure you do to. I pray we never forget the sacrifices they make, or to show our gratitude for it. Thank God for men like Amos, and for their willingness to heed the call.
